New service to launch

A NEW NHS initiative is being launched in Barnsley later this month to help people who use local mental health services get more active to boost their wellbeing.

The new physical activity development team, formerly the sports development team, is part of the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and will launch their service on May 14.

They will be providing a variety of sports and dance-based activities in Barnsley and across the Dearne.

For more information about the service, contact the physical activity development team on 01226 434784.
